A bit about my journey
My career in jewelry began in 1989 on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii. Friends had invited me to work with them and learn the art of hand modeling jewelry from polymer clays. After the wild experience of surviving Hurricane Iniki in 1992, we moved the business to Maui. Several years later I created my own line and company, which has since evolved to Seyana Jewelry.
Here on the slopes of Haleakala, I live on a two-acre organic farm with my husband Johno and our two truly adorable mini poodles, Abbey and Bertie.
I love my studio time joining elements of gemstones, crystals, pearls other unique materials to form wearable pieces of art.
Playing with different shapes, textures and colors lead me to that satisfied feeling; “Yes, this looks sweet!” and then Voila! Something new for you!
I often think about how the pieces we create are touching lives so far and wide, sharing the aloha they bring with them.
There is a gentleness in our way of life here in Hawaii I find mirrored in the hearts of my island family.
We were blessed to have a beautiful teacher named Ram Dass who had chosen to make Maui his home for many years until his passing. It is through this precious relationship the joy of creating the SpiritGem collection came about.
Our tropical islands have been my muse, an inspirational breath of color, texture, and sweetness. Hues of sunrise, sunset, twinkling starry nights & deep blue ocean reflect in the design of the jewelry.
My vision is to create jewelry that is unique, timeless, adorn-able, and always crafted with quality and care. Creating relationships with my clients and customer service is top of mind.
